O.K. I was trying to use some functions with sablotron, but neither
works (extensions are not enabled), so I have to make pure XSL

Well, I am forced to use Javascript due to I have to work with combo
boxes and I need "onchange" event to operate and select values
(depending of the option selected).

One combo box contains XML data and displays the values. When I select
one option, I need lo load one XML file (depending on the selected

For example:

<select name="combo1">
<option select="file1.xml">Option1</option>
<option select="file2.xml">Option2</option>
<option select="file3.xml">Option3</option>
<option select="file4.xml">Option4</option>

The main problem is that I am using a parser (Sablotron) with PHP to
transform XML and XSL files. I want to use standard components in
order to get all browsers can render the data, not only Internet

Any idea is highly appreciated. :-)
